    I'm surprised you can still catch "The Three Stooges" on now and then. One would think they would be banned. My friend used to say "I'm not saying lets kill all the stupid people, just remove the warning tags and let the problems work themselves out".

    You had to shop where Wiley Coyote shopped, at "ACME" they also sold anvils and rockets.

    When my dad was a kid (born in 1942) you could buy "firecrackers" that had TNT on the side of them. They were about 10X the power of any M80/M90 you can buy today. When he was....around 10, I think...he had one nearly blow his hand off. Said it was several years before he regained full use and feeling in it. They were powerful enough that you could light one and stick an empty 55 gallon drum over it....the pop would turn the drum back upright.

    I was recently watching Archie Bunker on tv. Albeit it was after 11 pm however I was pretty sure the racial terms were a no no in today's atmosphere. That and the suggestions given to one "meat head" could be taken as dangerous if attempted.

    When I was little, I just watched the cartoons. As I got older, about 10 or so, I asked my dad how come the Coyote didn't just have a pizza delivered with all the money he spent? The TV was turned off and I was told to go play outside.

    Then again, nobody had a bicycle helmet back then.

    didn't need a helmet..... you crash..you learn to protect 2 heads on your way to the ground.... it's what you do. Then you brush your ars off.. and get back on!!! I know teenagers NOW that can't ride a bike... much less make a ramp and do a X-up... they looked at me with WTF eyes when i unloaded the bikes at summer camp and I bunny-hopped a 180 twist with MY 20" Diamondback Joker off the bed cover of my truck.... lol funniest looks I've ever seen.

    I recall simple rules...1st is your homework DONE!
